I started the rental program as a way to quickly build my business at a time when that was an imperative in my life. I believe I have served the local community well in this regard, offering a cut above most other retail shops and stores.
In recent years the incidents of bad credit cards has become more and more tedious to track and follow up on. It has become very time consuming and is especially aggravating when people ignore my requests to call me back multiple times.
I have decided that it is time to stop renting fractional instruments, which will free up my time to develop some other parts of the business. It is my hope that people will understand how much more cost effective it is for them to purchase an instrument from me, and then trade it in for the next size up when the child is ready. Even selling a used fraction instrument for half of what was paid for it results in the long-term cost per month being about half of what it was costing to rent.
I still have plenty of used and new fractional instruments available for sale. Prices are very reasonable, and the quality level is high, with excellent strings, and even Perfection pegs on all the cellos and many of the violins and violas.
For the time being I will still be renting full-size violins, violas, and cellos.
Please contact me with any questions or comments.
